Impractical Jokers is an American hidden camera reality series that premiered on truTV on December 15, 2011, and is produced by NorthSouth Productions. It follows Joseph "Joe" Gatto, James "Murr" Murray, Brian "Q" Quinn, and Salvatore "Sal" Vulcano, the four members of the comedy troupe The Tenderloins, as they coerce one another into doing public pranks while being filmed by hidden cameras. The show differs from other prank television programs, focusing on witty humor, as compared to slapstick or crude comedy.
On March 7, 2018, truTV announced that the show would be renewed for an eighth season with 26 episodes. The eighth season premiered on March 28, 2019. truTV also confirmed an Impractical Jokers feature-length movie is planned, which began filming in April 2018 and is expected to premiere sometime in 2019.
On July 20, 2019, Murray announced on Impractically Speaking Live that the show was renewed for a 26-episode ninth season, which is scheduled to premiere in 2020.
